8. Taking Control of Our Thoughts
Show Notes

“Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.”

We all know that there are good thoughts…thoughts that bring life. Thoughts that bring healing. Thoughts and encourage others or even ourselves. 

Then there are thoughts that are toxic. Thoughts that bring pain, make us feel worthless, alone, anxious, discouraged. Thoughts that we aren’t good enough, that we aren’t pretty enough. 


In this episode we’re talking about how to change those toxic thoughts into good thoughts.


But first, I want to share an account of someone in the Bible who struggled with her thoughts and how she was able to overcome them, change those thoughts and receive complete healing in her life. 


We find her story in the book of Mark chapter 5 verses 25 though verse 34. You may have heard of her, we are talking about the woman with the issue of blood. 


Not only did she feel bad physically, but she was an outcast socially and emotionally, she was deeply alone. 


How did she go from deep despair to becoming completely healed? 

She chose to change her thoughts by changing her words. Her words changed her actions. Her actions changed her life!

The same thing is true for you. 

Is there a thought or maybe more than one thought that you have been struggling with? Maybe they are thoughts like:

  • I’m not pretty.
  • I’ll never be good enough.
  • I’m too fat….or too skinny.
  • I’m not smart.
  • I’m a total nobody. 
  • I’m weird. 
  •  I’m ugly.
  • I’m a disappointment. 
  • Nobody likes me. 
  • I’m worthless. 

Let me first tell you, none of those are true. They are a lie from the enemy. 

Ecclesiastes 3:10 says that God has made everything beautiful in its time. This is your time…God created you for this time…and whether you know it or not, you are pretty. 

You are good enough. 

You are beautiful just the way you are. 

You are loved and accepted by our Heavenly Father. 

You are not weird. 

You are not a disappointment. 

God looks at you through His eyes of love and says to you, “You are my daughter and I love you so much! Nothing you could ever do and nothing that has ever been done to you could ever change how much I love you!” 

You are not worthless!
